Quotas are implemented at the file system level and require that each user have unique Linux User ID (UID). A Samba-only user won't have a unique UID and thus can't have a quota. As you have observed a quotas do work for "home users". So to have quotas for all Samba users they must all also be LInux users ("home users").
